The La Crosse Center

Shirts and bibs can be picked up at the La Crosse Center between 2-6pm on Wednesday, November 25 and beginning at 6:30 am on Thanksgiving Day.

Start Time:

The Trot starts promptly at 8:00AM but there are 2 different start lines. The 2 Mile Course will start on Front St. behind the La Crosse Center. The 5 Mile Course will start near the corner of Jay St & 2nd St.

We ask that all participants enter the starting area from Front St.;  when you leave the La Crosse Center onto Front St.  there will be a sign pointing you to the course starting lines. 5 Milers- you are NOT starting on Front St- follow the signs.

Be sure you are in the correct starting area so you end up on the right course!  If you are a 5 Mile participant but you line up at the 2 Mile start line you will end up on the 2 mile course and will not be chip timed. Strollers and slower participants are asked to line up at the back of their respective group. Dogs will line up after all other participants on the 2 mile course.
